Updates from the Principal

December 19, 2021

To the Families of our KPS Students,

As you know, our district will be moving to remote learning beginning tomorrow, December 20th and lasting through Thursday, December 23rd. Below you will find information regarding what this week will look like as well as important information regarding items such as material pick up.

Kindergarten Students:

Kindergarten parents may pick up their child’s device and supplies beginning at 10:30 tomorrow in our cafeteria.  Please be certain to bring ID with you so the computer may be released.  Student email and log-on information as well as directions for how to access email will be included in that pickup.  Kindergarten teachers will be sending a learning schedule to your email by 9:30 AM tomorrow.

Grades 1-4:

Teachers of students in grades 1-4 will send a schedule out via email or Teams by 9:30 AM tomorrow.  The first ZOOM or TEAMS meeting for all grades 1-4 will be at Noon tomorrow.  Student supplies can be picked up between 10 AM and Noon tomorrow.  If that time is not feasible for you, items can be picked up any day thereafter Tuesday through Thursday between the hours of 8:15 AM and 3:30 PM.  The teachers will send a schedule for the remaining three days at some point before 3:30 PM tomorrow.

RtI (Reading and Math Support), Support Services (Speech, OT etc), and Special Area classes:

RTI and special area classes will begin on Tuesday.  Each RTI teacher will be sending notifications of schedules via email or Teams.  Consent forms for online support services (Speech, OT, PT, Counseling) will be sent from the Office of Special Education.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:

Beginning Tuesday and lasting through Thursday you can expect your child to participate in synchronous online learning including a morning meeting, an ELA block, a math block, small group class learning and special areas.  Again, consent forms for online support services (Speech, OT, PT, Counseling) will be sent from the Office of Special Education.  They must be signed and received prior to the beginning of online instruction. 

We know that this is both inconvenient and stressful and we are here to support and help you.  Please do your best to support your child in attending classes, however, we know schedules can be difficult in homes with many other factors including parent work schedules.  Do the best you can, we will ensure we support each of your children throughout this week as well as when we return in person in January to close any gaps that may be caused.   Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher or me, should you have any concerns or questions.

Kent Primary School Mission Statement

We are a community that is dedicated to developing and inspiring children to be their best selves in all aspects of their lives.

Who We Are:
We are a cohesive community of professionals with a strong sense of family that possess, celebrate and share our unique and individual strengths. We share a common focus to help, facilitate and encourage young minds to grow and fulfill their potential. As facilitators of learning, we utilize a multitude of resources to model and promote these desired outcomes. A strong cohesive community.

What We Do:
As an academic institution we contribute to the development of minds through inspiring children to create and pursue their own goals and objectives. We accomplish this by creating a welcoming, nurturing and trusting environment for all that empowers children to work alongside their peers, regardless of limitations, ultimately becoming independent lifelong learners.  Foster personal and academic growth.

Who We Do It For:
Our service is focused on the children who will develop a solid foundation of skills, knowledge and values, maximizing their individual potential along the way. This will in turn contribute to the perpetual improvement of society. Our children.

Why We Do It:
As we practice our deep commitment to learning, we accept the roles we fulfill because we understand that children require a safe, positive environment in which to develop into self-motivated and socially appropriate adults. We realize that fulfilling these responsibilities has an even greater benefit to all of us as a growing and ever evolving global community. To inspire children to be their best in all aspects of their lives
